Episode 093: An Expat’s Journey – Part 1

Living Unconventionally Podcast Britany Felix
“Just because you don’t know where you’re going to land, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take that leap.”

This week’s guest is Erica Blair. She is a Social Media Marketing Strategist that has lived abroad in places like Vietnam, Australia, and now Thailand for a total of about six years.

“I’ve been very conscious to set-up my life in a way that if something doesn’t feel right, I have the freedom to change.” – Erica Blair

Today, we talk about her experiences living abroad and traveling through Europe; including teaching English in Vietnam and studying in the South of France during college.

“I’ve never been interested in living in a remote village by myself. That’s not my style.” – Erica Blair

Erica talks about getting involved with teaching English in foreign countries, how she connects with other digital nomads in a new location, the scary experience she went through and now encourages other expats to do as well, how to get an International Driving Permit, and just how cheap she is living in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

“The world is seriously so open and available to you once you get out and start exploring it.” – Erica Blair
